The annual Get Lit event was a sold out success held at 2nd Floor Events on May 4th, 2016.
Notable Canadians and locals included CTV’s Kevin Newman, Black Hoof’s Jen Agg, Dave Bidini of the Rheostatics, Matt James, Dr. Jean Marmoreo and Powerplant Gallery’s Gaetane Verna. They engaged the audience with their readings from writings that have personally inspired them.
Proceeds of the evening support of First Book Canada, an organization that puts new books in the hands of children in communities that are in need to help promote literacy at an early age.
The evening was abundant with delectable food from Elle Cuisine, good wine, great people, laughter and some touching moments.
Congratulations to the Get Lit committee for organizing a successful, well attended and stellar event.
